The Cripple of Inishmaan

The Cripple of Inishmaan is a strange and comic tale set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anyone is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the tedium of his daily life.
